You know that feeling, when you love something and want all the world to know, but then again, if all world knows they might spoil it? Well, this is one of those cases... The hotel is tucked away on 7 acres of nature preserved land, overlooking the ocean. You can see Lisbon and Estoril in a secure distance. The main...

The owners and staff were warm, welcoming and very professional. The service was easy and relaxed. Nothing was any trouble. The house and bedrooms were spotlessly clean and the food was simple and of the best quality. We had a wonderful time and felt totally rejuvenated on leaving. The area is very pretty and has the most wonderful beaches. We...

Just facts: we booked a weekend through booking.com exactly a month ago. The day before the arrival we sent an email stating that we would come the next day. Upon arrival they didn't even let us in, so we waited outside the gates for someone to explain what's going on. A person went out with a message that there was...

Meco P, Gerente at Casal do Frade, responded to this review

Once again we present our apology. Unfortunately Sistemainformatico reserves fell. The solution was arranged to stay in a hotel better than ours. Either way when returning to Portugal will be our guest.

We were the third time in Aldeia do Meco and it was our first stay in Casal do Frade, where we spent wonderful and relaxing 10 days in this Guest House. We only can agree with the comments of the other guests. Christian and Henrique are excellent hosts and charismatic personalities with a very friendly and motivated team. Our bungalow...

Little did I know, that when I entered the gate that led me into a vast pine tree forest that encompasses Casal do Frade, I would return again and again: following a visit motivated by mere curiosity to see the rooms, Casal do Frade became the place from where I travelled from Ms to Mrs. Casal do Frade's peace, it's...

I stayed at Casal do Frade in August this year and enjoyed every minute of it! Great location, great people, great food! The white sandy beaches are just 10 minutes away and the local restaurants are excellent! I will go back for sure!

Splendid location nearby Meco, we stayed here for a wedding and we occupied the main house, it was a jump into the flora & fauna of the surrounding. Less than 5 mins from the beach and tip of the tops the hosts are very flexible and easy.price is average but the experience is sublime here

This is a cozy homey retreat, so welcoming, clean and isolated. The owners are there to say hello, to ask if you have any special breakfast wishes, yummy bread, jam, honey, you can have homemade dinners too, the five dogs are so cute and funny, the beds are really comfortable, the swimming pool area is relaxing and smack in nature......

Not far at all but hidden within the huge pinewood along the Atlantic. A very nicely laid-out family house turned into a charming guesthouse. The ideal spot for an extended week-end, looking at the ocean and enjoying a very creative food in this cocoon...
